The former automobile path has been transformed into a restaurant patio.
 
 
 


The brickwork of the former railroad approach can be seen at middle right.
 


South end of the bridge -- structure that supported the cantilevered street car track can be seen at bottom center.
 


Looking south from the south end of the bridge.
 
 


Pedestrians can now walk on either the former automobile lanes (left) or on the old pedestrian walk (right).
 


The former railroad track will remain abandoned for the forseeable future.  It has been studied for possible future
use in a light rail line.
 


Another view of the south end of the bridge.
 


The arches of the former railroad approach now mark the entrances to
the Newport-on-the-Levee parking garage.
 


The buildings in this area were recently demolished to provide more parking for the entertainment complex.
